Oh my god, I felt like a sardine. They developed their passenger seating scheme by carefully studying Iraqi prison torture manuals, I think. I didn't die but that outcome was surprising to me.

Every single leg of my journey was delayed. I almost missed my connecting flight to Paris because the pilot hadn't shown up yet and we were just sitting around waiting for him to arrive at the terminal. Fortunately we made up for the delay in the air.

I got a refund. Nothing other than that.

Previous flight was delayed and Norwegian changed the flight so HiFly was operating. Didn’t have any way of checking in so even though I was at the check in desk almost an hour early I wasn’t allowed in and they stated I missed my flight. They weren’t able to get me on the evening flight either. I was stuck at the airport. Throughout this there was absolutely no compassion from any of the workers. I was visibly very upset and the supervisor was standing right in front of me joking around with a coworker, ignoring me. I had to go up to her. I am seriously concerned about my flight back from London via Norwegian, and should probably just cancel and use a different airline to be honest.

I liked the price of the trip. I only had one issue, and that was not knowing that I had to pay for the luggage. I had a backpack with me and I also had a 21 pound suitcase. More in new work I was told that I had to pay $95. But that was my fault because I did not do the reading properly.

Every single leg of my journey was delayed. We missed our connecting flight and got trapped in Iceland for a day. The plane didn't show up for 45 minutes and then we had to sit on the runway due to high winds. The staff didn't know anything or wouldn't tell us anything when all the travelers started to get nervous about missing their flights. Poor communication.

Same previous comments. They left us leaving the gate and entering the bus to get to the plane, but we had to wait first at least 20 minutes in the bus leaving the gate and another 5 to 10 minutes before entering the plane. That's just not acceptable in 2017...

It's OK to ask to pay for everything as long as the flight is on time. But no matter what was the flight - Boston to Iceland, Iceland to Paris, Paris to Iceland and Iceland back to Boston - flights were late - almost missing the connection in Iceland back to Boston. And the fact that you have to take a bus at the airport in Iceland for your connection and wait 20 minutes in the bus is just not acceptable...

I got to the airport at 8:45 for a 10:25 flight with carry on only. Carry on I have used with Norwegian in the past, and was actually packed minimally as this trip is only 4 days. The person at the kiosks who did the weighing of luggage was barely understandable. No one was helpful, instead it was like some game t weigh the bag and tell someone it was a kilo over. After I stood in line for 45 min, the bag weighed in at 8.6 kilos!! Clearly under the requirement, but as I was told to stand in line I was forced to check that bag and pay $65 (and to pay you had to move to a separate line that took another 30 min). As you can imagine 40% of the plane was in the same spot and then even with the flight boarding, no Norwegian staff assisted all of these passengers to get through security. Miserable!

First time traveling with WOW and it was okay. Price was decent, a little better than Spirit, but the same with paying additional for everything so it's not really saving. Overall, great flight the pilots did a great job getting me to my destination (there and back) safely and with time to spare.

For a 9 hour flight they should accommodate their passengers with free beverages at least. The seats were very uncomfortable. Flight attendance were polite but very hard to get a hold of, they talk too much among each other, like HELLO you're working get it together! My flight was delay returning back to my original destination and no communication was received until a staff member showed up almost 2 hours late.

Baggage delayed at Newark so that I only got my bag an hour after landing. Also half hour wait to get to the gate. This meant that I missed my train connection nd had to pay an additional $75. I simply won’t take this airline again and flying out of Newark as a Philadelphia resident is not that convenient either.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
